Sometimes the best recipes come from the most unexpected places. Take this amazing grilled ricotta chicken. Years ago when my dad bought a new gas grill, it came with a small recipe booklet. I selected this one and it quickly became one of our favorite dishes of all time! A mixture of ricotta, parsley, and spices is stuffed under the skin of a flattened chicken. The whole thing is grilled until the skin is crispy and the meat is juicy and delicious. To make it extra scrumptious, I recommend using homemade ricotta! Ready for the easy recipe? Read on.
